They don't make donuts like this anymore - actually they do, here! Fabulous, non-dietetic, freshly baked, warm donuts that melt in your mouth. I have been called here by their fresh baked chocolate donuts on many a Saturday morning, losing all resolve along the way. Ok, two! Need I say more!

Because our B&B (Bed and Breakfast?) turned out to be a Bed and Bath, we needed something close on the first morning during our stay in Rockport. I had seen the ad for Willow Bake Shop and decided we could "do" donuts on our rainy, Maine morning. I drove to their shop and ordered a mixed dozen. ALL of them... More

Stopped in because of the reviews. I would definitely recommend the raised, glazed plain donuts as well as the coconut covered chocolate. Go great with a cup of coffee.

This is strictly a coffee and donut place. What sets them apart and has allowed them to operate since 1949 is that they serve about the best cake donuts that you have had since you were a kid. They have a wide selection of flavors and superb coffee. Moreover, it costs a bit less than places like Dunkin Donuts. Better... More

There's no better place for a ring of dough in the midcoast! So many delicious selections - less than a tenner for a dozen! Molasses are not to be missed!

If you are looking for handmade old-fashioned doughnuts, this is the place to go! From buttermilk to blueberry sugared cake doughnuts, this place is the go-to-destination for your morning doughnut and coffee/tea!

We stopped in to the Willow Bake Shoppe for coffee and a donut before heading out to the Breakwater Lighthouse. Donuts were super fresh and good as was the coffee! We arrived just in time as a line quickly formed. This is the perfect little donut place. Give it a try; you won't regret it!

The donuts here are home made and scrumptious. Lots of flavors and so fresh. We recommend the sour cream donuts for a real treat.

Best cake donuts on Mid-Coast Maine. Just great donuts - this is not a full service bakery, so no cakes, cookies or jelly-filled donuts etc. If you have a craving for homemade, delicious, grandma style donuts stop here because you will not be disappointed.

Cute place set up in an old house on rte. 1 with seating. Unfortunately no JELLY DONUTS. When asked why they didn't make a Jelly Donut I was told that they only make what their regulars want. Who doesn't want a Jelly Donut? I would recommend putting a Jelly Donut into the rotation. Make it like "JELLY DONUT FRIDAY". Have... More
